Italy 150 Update – Photos and News from the Roadby Rick Price - Sunday, June 5, 2011
As the Italy 150 Expedition drew to a close we heard a few snippets from the cyclists on the road. Mostly that this was a true trip of a lifetime and our veteran ExpeditionPlus! cyclists report that – “this is the hardest bike tour of all”.
When our group pedaled into Torino Friday, June 3 – the final day’s schedule included a gathering at the city’s Velodrome with local delegates from the city, bike clubs and even a group from Salt Lake City Utah!. They finished with a bike parade to the official Italy 150 exhibition hall where they were greeted in true Italian fashion with food and wine. A fitting end to this 1,400 mile adventure from Sicily to Piedmont!
As participants go through their photos, we are adding links and photos to this page.
